Very interesting Christina, and very simple to use, huge kudos! Working through a quick experiment model, it was simple to create the joints, and simple to adjust the few corners that couldn’t be resolved in both directions, so definitely a great tool!
The plugin is great, it saves a lot of time. Now I am trying to use it to unfold all the pieces of woodworking project and some of the components are still vertical after unfolding. I suppose this is somehow related to axes of components, do you have an idea if there’s an easy fix for such issue.
I’ve just checked and I see that those vertical components have their thickness along green or red axes instead of blue one.
AFAIU this can be fixed with “adjust axes” tool provided by plugin but this can be rather time consuming for bigger model. So now the question is if it’s possible to “normalize” axes for all components at once and if my modelling technique is to blame for those axis misalignment?
Also I don’t get how to use adjust axes properly. It aligns the axes’ zero to one of component’s angles or middle points but it does not let me to switch green and red axes. The only way I was able to switch green and red axes was using another corner as a zero point.
Can someone tell me what I might be doing wrong here?
These adjacent edges won’t resolve both edges (the way that the other edge successfully did).
(I attached file, which includes copy of original solid model.)
